Nazareth. The hometown of Jesus. Today, it’s a modern city with homes, markets, and places of worship. As I stepped into this corner of the world, I was stunned by the normalcy of life in holy places. This encounter reminded me that the sacred and the secular can exist alongside each other. The holiness of this city does not exclude the realness of everyday life. In the hustle and bustle of our lives, Jesus is still alive and working.
This place is real. These people are real. Our God is real.
And he wants to walk with us every day in the sacred, secular, and everything in between.
